monitors, that no one watches 

mixed media installation, multi-channel video, paint, hair

The components of the installation "monitors that no one watches" was made during a 3 weeks period in Köln (sept-oct 2008) and on a train towards Munich airport.
The basic idea was to capture actions in public space, as an interference and a reflection of the space and the specific time the action was made.
We were trying to highlight those unseen, unnoticed sites that surround us in our everyday life on one hand and to bring our regular activity into another space, as a challenge dealing with the difference in the situation.This lead to a whole disparate interpretation of the actions itself.

The work was a process that was developed with each capture.
The installation itself is a composition of 3 different video works that were captured on miniDV, from CCTV or from a LCD computer screen
